The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) Financial Services Faculty has published a guide to help banks and their auditors deal with the effects of coronavirus on financial reporting under IFRS 9 'Financial Instruments'.

The guide sets out considerations to help banks and their auditors deal with three areas of the standard affected by the economic consequences of coronavirus: 

  • forecasting and multiple economic scenarios;
  • significant increase in credit risk; and
  • reporting and disclosure

The guide draws together statements from the International Accounting Standards Board, European Securities and Markets Authority and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision about how the principles in IFRS 9 may be applied to the situation created by COVID-19.
